DENNIS ECKERSLEY RUMORS

Dennis Eckersley’s Reaction to the Wade Miley/John Farrell Dust-up is Classic Eck

Okay, so the Red Sox lost again tonight. That much you could have probably figured out based solely on the fact that the Red Sox played tonight. But the evening was not without its highlight. In the fourth, when John Farrell lifted Wade Miley after Hazzard County’s favorite son gave up his third home run of the night and was clearly working with the finesse of a guy tossing a...

Today in Tribe History: May 30, 1977

1977 – Dennis Eckersley throws the 13th no-hitter in Indians history as he shuts down the California Angels, 1-0, at Cleveland Stadium. Eckersley is the first Indians hurler to lob a no-no since Dick Bosman narrowly missed a perfect game on July 19th, 1974. Eckersley was just as masterful on the mound, striking out a dozen Angels, including at least one in every inning, while walking...

Red Sox Legend Luis Tiant Deserves To Be In The Hall Of Fame (Video)

Luis Tiant is a Boston Red Sox legend, no matter how you spin it. He’s also one of the best pitchers Major League Baseball has ever seen, and was one of the most dominant pitchers of the 1970s.

On Tribe Talk, Dennis Eckersley, and Mother’s Day

A local FM rock radio station once featured a call-in segment on Friday afternoons. One by one, callers would share the punchlines of jokes. It didn’t matter how raunchy the jokes were if the punchlines were clean. And they weren’t all dirty — some were silly, while others were just fun cultural references, like gags from a movie. The DJ would get them on the air in rapid...

Dennis Eckersley: Bryan Price Took Out Frustration On Media (Video)

It’s safe to say Bryan Price had a worse Monday than you. The Cincinnati Reds manager went on a profane tirade for the ages prior to his team’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers, dropping 77 F-bombs in less than six minutes as he absolutely went off on the media. Price was less than pleased that reporters were essentially doing their job of reporting players’ whereabouts,...

Hall Of Famer Dennis Eckersley Turns 60 Today

Little League EckDennis Eckersley spent eight of his twenty-four MLB seasons in Boston. Over that span, he was 88-71 with a 3.92 ERA.
